AMSA represents the interests of all Australian medical students to relevant government departments, non-government organisations, media outlets, universities, and the public to ensure that medical students’ concerns are heard. AMSA’s main advocacy priorities in 2015 are the availability of quality internships for all medical graduates, student mental health and wellbeing, fee deregulation and commonwealth base funding for medical education, and the quality of clinical placements.
Three times a year, the AMSA National Council meets to formalise policy on medical education, workforce and public health issues. Each University has an AMSA Representative who represents their students on a national stage at AMSA Council; will be held from March 24 - 26 in Brisbane. If you’d like to attend or have an issue you want heard, be sure to contact your AMSA Representative.
